After being imprisoned and branded for the death of her client, 25-year-old midwife Julianne Chevalier trades her life sentence for exile to the fledgling 1720s French colony of Louisiana, where she hopes to be reunited with her brother, serving there as a soldier. To make the journey, though, women must be married, and Julianne is forced to wed a fellow convict.
When they arrive in New Orleans, there is no news of Benjamin, Julianne's brother, and searching for answers proves dangerous. What is behind the mystery, and does military officer Marc-Paul Girard know more than he is letting on? With her dreams of a new life shattered, Julianne must find her way in this dangerous, rugged land, despite never being able to escape the king's mark on her shoulder that brands her a criminal beyond redemption.

Excellent plot woven into History
Excellent plot stirred into historical facts, the 1700s comes to life with excellent writing. The plight of this young midwife grips the reader. An extremely passionate, yet sweet romance folded into the story of New Orleans.

wonderful performance to a great story
loved the lovely French pronunciation. so much better than my mind guessing how the words should sound. Ms. Green is one of my favorite authors. It is about time someone snatches up the opportunity to record her stories.
